||This weapon operates smoothly and flawlessly when properly maintained. Although the spring tension on the recoil system leaves just a little to be desired, it can certainly be adjusted. She breaks down just like the real-steel as well; press the release button on the left side of the frame, rock the lever on the right forward, and the barrel assembly is easily lifted out, allowing the slide to come off. Remember to turn the gun upside-down when re-assembling it, or the recoil guide will stymy even your best efforts.
You -MUST- lubricate this gun, and don't do what I did either and use Breakfree because you're out of silicone oil. Its composition is too heavy and will eventually cause moving parts to gum up, and being petroleum-based can deteriorate plastic internals. Use ONLY silicone oil.
4/5 due to a minor spring tension issue.
Operates using both green gas and CO2 magazines
Very simple takedown/reassembly, just like real-steel
Recoil spring tension could be a little stronger
Difficult at times to find spare parts
